A smoked double IPA? Sign me up.

This pours a hazy straw-orange with cottony clouds.

Smoke and a candied orange hop compete in the aroma for attention.

The flavor hits with a hoppy orange preserve piney punch, followed by a touch of campfire smoke. As a concept it’s one I’d like to see more of.

Smoked IPA? Had to try that.

Orange and brown with a citrus/pine aroma marked with a hint of smoke. Taste was much like the smell with more pronounced smokiness on the finish. The mouthfeel was oily with a srtong, dry finish. A very cool combination that I've never seen, nice play on words with rauch and very pleased to see Ska's name appear in Ohio.

The beer is a hazy orange but is still clear enough to see through it. The head is creamy but also a bit foamy that is off white and even a bit orange. The head lasts for a while before dissipating completely. The beer's smell has strong apricot and smokey notes. Additionally, the beer also has a hint of orange but sometimes gets lost in the strong apricot smell. The beer's taste is the same as its smell. The beer's taste has smoky notes with strong apricot and orange notes. The smoky notes provide a nice contrast to the apricot and held dull some of the apricot. However, the apricot notes can become overwhelming. The beer is medium bodied but feels a bit more thicker than that. The beer has a sticky aftertaste. The beer also has biting carbonation and is smooth. Overall,a pretty good beer but not one that I'd drink more than one in a single sitting.
